Product: Elitebook 840 G1
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
Trying to update BIOS using HP bios update utility. It gives me error saying password is already set and need password to proceed. When I reboot and press ESC to get into BIOS, it prompts me for BIOS password. I have tried blank, empty space, enter but no luck.
I also ran the BIOS configuration utility from command prompt
I got an error message saying "unable to process command. Password is set, but no password file is provided"
and error message "BCU return value real="10" translated="10"

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
